FUN. TEAMWORK. NEXT LEVEL OF PLAY
Does your daughter love the game of softball?
Does she want to take her game to the next level?
Does she have what it takes?
Travel Softball teams are well organized and competitive which gives players the practice and training to build the mechanics and fundamentals of the game. Starting as early as September, we practice outdoors in the fall and throughout the winter indoors, making sure that our athletes are well prepared when our season starts in May to early June.
Players learn from seasoned volunteer coaches and hired professionals who focus on throwing, hitting, fielding and game strategy.
NRBB Travel Softball provides off-season practice and instructions. It allows the players to travel to local communities to play and prepares them to be future high school players and beyond. Players spend many hours with their team mates who become close friends. If you have never played travel ball, played before or played for another City, we welcome you to join our program.
The dynamics of teams change every year! Please do not assume that a team is "already set," for next year. We are always looking for players who want to play in our community and want more out of the game.
NRBB Girls Travel Teams play teams typically play teams within a 40-minute commute.
Exciting opportunities to play 2-3 tournaments per year. This may vary depending upon the team manager. In 2024, we will have teams that may play additional tournaments throughout the season.
You will be surprised that NRBB Girls Travel Softball is very affordable as team fees are usually only $400 per player, per year.
Each fall, teams are required to make a new team for the new season which runs (9/1 to 8/31).
For the 2024 season, the rules are changing. USA Softball has changed the age eligibility requirements for the 2024 season and NRBB and Emerald Necklace Fastpitch Association (the league we play in) will follow this change for our events. Every major softball organization in the country, except USSSA, is following the USA Softball guidelines.
For the 2024 season which begins on 9/1/23, whatever the player's physical age is on 9/1/23 is their playing age for the full season which runs 9/1/23 to 8/31/24).
Please refer to this chart to determine what tryouts your daugther should attend.
Note that NRBB currently has teams in the 10u, 12u, 14u and 16/18U divisions.
Players of younger age classification may play in older age classifications, players may not play in the younger age classification based on their eligibility/age as of September 1, 2023.
